before. now you're jack kennedy. >> the two men at the top of the ticket will meet on tuesday at hofstra university in new york. we know of course it's a town hall format because there had been a lot of speculation over what questions might be asked. it's always interesting to see the public put in questions to the candidates instead of just the moderate during this case. >> yes, some people say the moderator was more beneficial to biden last night. not quite sure if that was true. >> what's hard for us over here is that the debate which is at 9:00 eastern time for us starts at 2:00 in the morning. so we have to wake up and try and rely on accounts. >> what is amazing to me is how warmly they greet each other and behind the smiles, they're saying i'll beat your brains out. >> we do the same thing, don't we? >> yes. this is a total act. behind it, we hate each other. fortunately, we do like our next guest, head of research at credit suisse 3r50iprivate bank. as an investor as we watch the maturation of the u.s. election campaign, what actually matters some. >> the fiscal cliff. obviously

've seen that memorable line from debates in the past where the one says senator you're no jack kennedy. and that's one of the few instances where there was something that came out of it. and i almost hope we get something like that tonight. we'll see. >> what will they say now? >> you're no probably ronald reagan or something. >> meanwhile the latest national polls may show president obama and mitt romney are in a tight race, but if you believe the 7-eleven indicator, the election may have already been decided. yes, that's right, the convenience store chain is once again running a promotion where it sells coffee in democrat blue cups with obama's face and republican red featuring romney. so far customers favor obama by a 60/40 margin. it has correctly predicted the winner of the last three u.s. elections. i'd like to know if it's only been run in the last three elections. >> still not a huge sample size. meanwhile pizza hut is offering a lifetime, yes, a lifetime of fr free -- life time qualifying as 30 years to anyone who asks sausage or pepperoni in the debate. >> of course we've bee

in that race, even though he got smacked down with that "you're no jack kennedy" line, because he took the fight to michael dukakis and that's the bottom line that you hear from people who have been through these debates, is that the key for vice presidential candidates, guys, is for them to focus their fire not on the counter pa counterpart standing across the stage from them but rather, on the top of the other ticket. you can expect joe biden's going to be very aggressive in going after mitt romney, perhaps using paul ryan and his budget plan to do that. and paul ryan's going to return the favor and go after barack obama. it is going to be an interesting night here in danville, center college which has hosted these debates before. guys? >> john, we look forward to seeing it upon thsee ing it tonight. >>> more on the sprint news this morning, former president and ceo of verizon wireless and author of "managers can you hear me now," denny stregl, good to see you. first i want to start off with the sprint news. should a deal proceed between softbank and sprint, how will that change the
